SHUFFLEBOARD                                                 Ken Cade
Due to the Unit closing in mid March our season ended early. On July 24 we held our banquet with an excel-lent attendance by the members, We had a Bar B Q with burgers, smokies and hot dogs, plus 3 kinds of salad and a Shuffleboard Cake. Thanks to Millie Blair, Sandra Seal and Shirley Lyon for the salads and thanks to Mark Buchan and Rae Roberts for being the cooks. Donna Hartie and Gord Watt assisted with the food which was appreciated. Prizes were awarded for the 3 divisions for most wins per team and most hangers for Ladies and Men in each division.

C Division most wins were; Adele and Wilf with Gord and Cheryl being the runners up. Most Hangers Ladies was Shirley M. and Linda second - Mens Hangers was a tie with John and Wilf. Alain then passed the mike to Faye to present the B Division awards. Most wins were Shirley L. and Ken C., Sandra S. and Len were runners up. Len had most hangers with Ken C. second - Sandra S. was second for most hangers and Shirley L. had the most hangers for the whole league of Ladies. Ken C. then presented for A Division – Most Hangers for Ladies was a tie with Sandra P. and Cindy. Tom was runner up for the Men and Ken J. has the most hang-ers for the League. Runners up for most wins was Faye and Mark, while the A Division Most Wins and Aggregate were won by Kim and Alain, a job well done. During the event members voted for the member who was the most sportsperson. It was a close vote and Stan J. received the most votes and was presented his plaque.

In past years we had 3 very large trophies – by a vote of the membership they have been replaced with plaques for our history and there are plaques for the divisions – grand aggregate – most hangers and the sportsperson – all plaques have been placed on the east wall near shuffleboard #2.

In closing I will be announcing our League start date for this Season once my talks with the Sports Officer and Health Service to ensure everyone will be safe.

A discussion was presented regarding making a donation to the Unit due to the shorter income. There were questions and answers and then Rosanne P. moved that we donate $1000 to the Unit which was passed with everyone voting yes. The cake was passed around and the party ended. Hopefully we will have the pictures taken printed below.
